If you ask me anything about football, you’ll get a blank stare. But if you ask me about baseball, I might be able to answer your question. This past Monday, something crazy/insane/momentous happened. I watched a baseball game that started in August and ended in September! (!!!)
The Dodgers swept the Giants this week! Yay! Woo hoo! Anyway, the first game of their series took place on Monday, August 31. It started at 7pm and ended at 12:30am September 1st. The game lasted 14 innings! I’m fully aware of the 7th inning stretch, but I did not know that a second stretch takes place at the 14th inning. I always thought it was a one and done deal. No matter how much I love baseball, I don’t think I can attend a game that requires to me sing Take Me Out to the Ball Game twice.
Over the weekend, I made a ton of these fig popsicles. So while Alex and I (along with our pups) watched the Dodgers and Giants this week, we ate these whiskey yogurt fig popsicles. (I think they’re good luck. I’m not going to eat the remaining popsicles until the next Dodgers game. Yes, I believe in silly sports superstition.)
Some recipes come about because I’m craving a particular treat. And then some recipes are made out of necessity. Necessity being that I need to clean out the fridge and make room for new groceries. I had yogurt, mascarpone, and a ton of figs. Immediately I thought about these fig popsicles I saw on Instagram a couple weeks ago.
